“Top 5 Things to Do in Bali”

ProLandscape, food, weather

Cons16 hour flight

I couldn’t imagine anyone not falling in love with Bali the moment they stepped on to it and so did we. To go with this review, I have written one on a great villa accommodation – “Lumbini Luxury Villas and Spa” located in Jimbaran where we stayed at during our time in Bali and which you can...

I was extremely lucky to have visited Bali, Indonesia in June 2005, before the second bombings took place. To have occurred once was horrendous, killing and maiming all those people but for a second time - what has this island paradise and beautiful and gentle people done to deserve this? I don't...

“Bleurgh to Bali”

published 05/09/2002

ProHot, sunny, cheap food and a local KFC!!

ConsDirty, not nice beaches and the sea was too rough!

As you can tell by the title Bali was not my ideal holiday - do apologise to anyone that loves it! Bali was part of a three centre holiday that included Bangkok and Hong Kong in October 2001. Bangkok was for the first three nights, Hong Kong for the last two nights and Bali was the nine nights in...

“Paradise On Earth”

ProSun, Heat, Surf, Cheap, Clean and Safe

ConsLong distance flight, Expensive flight

I went to Bali in September 1999 with my girlfriend and spent three weeks travelling the island. After a long 25 hour flight, the moment we stepped off the plane we knew that we were in Paradise. From the runway that disappears into the sea built on a coral reef, the surrounding beaches and palm...

On Saturday October 12th 2002 just after 11pm a small bomb exploded in Paddy’s Bar on Legian Street in Kuta, Bali. This was shortly followed by a huge explosion that came from a car parked across the street outside the Sari Club. Both Paddy’s Bar and the Sari Club were full of young...

“Something For Everyone”

published 08/08/2000

Bali really does cater for everyone, be you a backpacker, honeymooner or package holidayer. Parts of the island have been decimated by tourism. The best example of this is Kuta, once a peaceful fishing village with an amazing beach, now a sprawling town full of hawkers and pimps. (the beach is...

Bali - everyone's idea of paradise? Well, certainly ours which is why we chose to go there for our honeymoon last month. Perhaps our expectations were set too high or perhaps we have been fortunate to have seen many other beautiful places for we found Bali to be a great disappointment. Harsh...

I've been to Bali three times in my life. And I must suggest you to go there! =) First of all, mentioning beach, Bali has a lot of beautiful beaches, including Kuta beach, Legian beach, Sanur beach and many more. It is well-known in Bali for spending time watching sun-being-set in the mouth of...

“LIVING ROUGH(ISH!)”

published 22/06/2000

ProWeather, atmosphere, cheapness of everything.

ConsLack of hot water,hawkers.

Getting to Gili Trawagnan was quite an ordeal in itself, travelling from Bali to Lombok, and then getting on the boat over to the island. As the boat approched the Island we became aware of the fact that it would not sail all the way to the shore so we had to jump out and wade through the water...
